About Thomas
Hello Students/Parents

I am an energetic, enthusiastic teacher who cares deeply about the student's musical learning experience.

My music studies began in Louisville with well-regarded teachers John Roy (drumset) and Rick Mattingly (percussion). I later studied music at Bellarmine College and the University of Louisville School of Music. As a professional musician I have shared the bandstand with countless masters of jazz, rock and blues. A partial list includes legend jazz guitarist Jimmy Raney, vocalist Helen Hume (sang with Count Basie), local guitar legend Jeff Sherman, rhythm and blues group Backstreets, and many more. I currently play weekend nights at Volare Restaurant with multi-style group Jazz Vineyard. I do individual dates with Jazzcrafters, regularly record at two local studios, and Sundays I play in a Christian rock group
at St. Francis in the Fields.
My hope is that my passion for music, experience, enthusiasm, and caring attitude will be a winning combination for my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
You can expect a teacher who is dedicated to helping the student realize his or her potential. My preference is to combine music reading, technique, and real-world playing experience; encouraging progress, but working at the student's pace. Reading music is important to the music student--since it is the language all of us musicians use. Some students may not care to read, and that is okay. We can work on technique and specific drum styles and patterns. All students are welcome to bring their music preferences to our lessons but I will usually attempt to expand the student's repertoire.
Lesson materials include: method books covering reading, styles, technique; specific songs suggested by either student or teacher; and materials written by the teacher.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in nice office studio which is located on the first floor of our Highlands home. Full keyboard available for the piano lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
The student will need to have his/her instrument.
I will provide music samples and method books or list of books the student should buy.
Drum set, drums pads, and/or electronic drum set, xylophone, and percussion instruments supplied in teacher's studio.

*** Specialties ***
My strongest genres include jazz, jazz rock, latin jazz, rock, blues, and country but I teach others as well. I help the student build on the basics, creating a strong foundation, and then we branch out... .

Jump at the chance to study with him!

Great music instructor!

Tom is an excellent drum instructor. He makes lessons fun but also covers the important material. He has a lot of experience in multiple styles and is able to share that with the student.

About Brandon
I started learning piano by the age of 4. Started composition by the age of 5. At the age of 12, I started guitar and never turned back. Music was always the ULTIMATE escape. To me there's nothing that compares to the feeling I get after completing a song, or the rush of a good performance. I decided that I'd rather do nothing else in life but music. After high school I went to the famed Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA., where I was taught by the most amazing musicians I've ever known. Some of the teachers who influenced me were Dan Gilbert from the Guitar World magazine, and David Oakes who trained with Andre Segovia (famed classical guitarist). After that, I continued with my Bachelors in Music at ENMU. My influences are a wide range. I love any music with shred guitar. Anything virtuosic is what I love. I enjoy playing everything
from Latin, classical, blues, all the way to heavy metal. I have a lot of on stage experience that has served me well, and my mission is to give back the inspiration that has been my love for music.

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important thing with any instrument is that you're enjoying what your doing. If you're not having fun with guitar, then you're probably not going to stick with it. I teach beginning to advanced guitar and my students really enjoy the lesson plans. My lessons vary from student to student depending on what they want to accomplish, and what they need to succeed. After the student reaches a certain level I get them to play with other musicians. Sometimes I'll bring in my drummer and hop on the bass so the student can get the feel of playing with a full band! I expect a lot from students and they seem to have no problem delivering,

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home studio- includes amps, guitars and recording equipment. Custom built computer designed for studio use. Pre-sonus Firepods. Focusrite Sapphire pro 26. Ton's of pedals. Pro Tools 10 Professional

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have backup amps and guitars just in case. I bring all the materials for the lesson plans to the student's home.

*** Specialties ***
classical, rumba, metal, classic rock, hard rock, shred, Brazilian, fusion, blues, and most Latin styles.

About Carly
Hello, my name is Carly. I'm currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in music education at the University of Louisville. Throughout the past couple of semesters I've been learning many different methods for teaching, privately and publicly. I have 6 students of my own, and would love to expand my studio and take in more cellists. I've been playing cello about 10 years and love to share my passion with others. The most effective way of learning about anything is by actually doing it!

About Tristan
My name is Tristan Svoboda, and one of my favorite things to do is teach. I love kids, and have my own little sister who I give lessons to. I have studied pedagogy and other famous teachers so that I can better teach my own students. As I have been through the whole process of learning violin, I have all the resources and skills I need to take others through the same journey I went through. In addition to teaching violin, I have taught English and French in the past and I find that teaching any kind of subject follows the same basic pedagogic principles.

About Tammy
Hi, I’m Tammy!
I’m good at forming strong personal connections, and my desire is for students to enjoy and excel at playing the piano. I've been teaching private lessons out of my home and at a local music shop, and have loved helping my students learn to play and read music, prepare for recitals, and prepare for solos and accompaniment at their schools and churches. I’m patient, encouraging, and like to see students really understand music and grow in their ability to play. My lessons are challenging, but fun. I like students to choose some of their own music and participate in choosing their direction and pace. I find that playing songs they know and like helps to facilitate at home practice and faster learning, as students enjoy their practice time! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I have 13 years of experie
nce taking piano lessons. During that time I played with my church’s music team, accompanied a choir, and became an experienced soloist and accompanist. I have experience accompanying singers, choirs, violinists, and bands. I additionally competed in music competitions and took home the highest award for piano in the state of Wisconsin, and accompanied several singers who also received highest awards. I was accepted into the University of Wisconsin Madison School of Music, but after my first year chose to shift my focus to the sciences, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Biology, followed by attending Northwestern Health Sciences University where I received a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. After a successful career in chiropractic, I sold my practice to become a homemaker and tutor, and am excited to once again return to my first love, music.

Who I Am
I am a professional singer and voice teacher. Helping singers find their true, authentic voice and self through artistic and technical study is my dream job and I get to do it every day! I love teaching all genres although my favorites are classical, musical theater, jazz and country/folk. I grew up singing country and bluegrass music before being trained classicaly and I still enjoy doing this every opportunity I get. I also play the fiddle (bluegrass style, not classical!) I love spending time outside hiking, camping and gardening. I have 3 sweet cats named Liza, Sam and Otis and an equally sweet chocolate Lab named Rosie. I love yoga, cooking, taking care of my growing number of house plants and teaching singers (of course)!

About Tom
I have been teaching music since 1975 when I graduated from Bellarmine University with an Associate of Fine Arts degree in music theory and composition. I have played with many artists and bands in the Louisville area and also in New England and the Caribbean .
As a professional musician I am well versed in all genres of music and enjoy teaching others the music that they want to play. I have found that most theoretical and technical aspects of music can be learned from many different styles."There are twelve tones and no one owns them" is a saying my music composition teacher would always tell us at college.
I encourage my students to explore their interests in music and expand their knowledge of what they want to play. I have had extensive ear training and can notate any song for you. most of all I have fun every day with music a
nd want to share that with my students!

I started playing piano when I was about 10 years old. It has taken practice and discipline to play well. One important truth in music that you should know is that if you don't enjoy it, you won't play well. I'm going to listen to your playing, give you some tips and always suggest what you should practice to improve where you are. The lesson is about you and where you are with your piano playing.

Some instructors add C7, D7, E7, G7, A7 and B7. The F chord is always the most difficult for the beginning guitar player because you hold two strings down with one finger. Ideally, you want your basic guitar chords to sound clean and crisp – no muffled strings. Keep practicing the individual chords un
